president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the romney campaign in florida because it's getting d

is matt fine an important reporter for "new york times," how bill clinton may have hurt the campaign. and clearly obama forces going to the "new york times" saying, look we followed clinton's advice saying romney was right winger and he turned out to be moderate. somebody told him to put it in. clearly it's a obama forces. interesting thing on the democratic side. >> jon: one noted the left was confident that romney would scare the hell out of voters by coming across as, in the words of "new york times" editorialist a strutting warmonger. they started mocking him as peace nik mitt. >> there is definitely indications she shifted positions. alan is right. there were several conflicts that he has taken. it tells you a lot about where the debate is at and how close romney's people think it is. he felt he was going to in gralt iate himself. >> one tweeted, if you had no idea about the race the level of aggression would make you think he is behind. one said the president looked like a challenger with interruptions. >> jon: talk about media assessment. a lot of media paid attention to the b
. it was restored and then upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point
bill clinton said today. take a listen to this. >> sure. >> and then we went to florida last night, and he got up this morning and called me, he said, i got to go back right now. this storm is getting out of hand, i got to handle it, and i said, mr. president, that is the right call. thank you for doing that. >> michael, if we've learned one thing about this president, it is that he is steadfast and strong in a crisis. it doesn't matter if he's commissioning the killing of bin laden or leading emergency planning at a time like this, does it? >> no, it doesn't, and it's one of the advantages of being president at a time like this. and i think -- >> but, michael, i would -- i'm thinking of the contrast between this president and, of course, the former president who was embarrassing, as you will remember, george w. bush, in relation to hurricane katrina. >> lessons learned. katrina was a lesson throughout the federal government of what not to do, not just at the presidential level, but operationally well below the president. and even for the states, quite frankly. the governor and the
of the heavy artillery. that would be the former president, bill clinton of the here is cnn's white house correspondent. >> reporter: for president obama there is no more powerful surrogate than president clinton. something he acknowledged in an interview released thursday. the last time we had healthy broad-based groelth was when he was president and people remember that. so he can say things that people immediately grab on to. that's why clinton stars in campaign ads. >> president obama has a plan to rebuild america from the ground up. >> he headlines fundraisers and rallies. this one last week with bruce spring teen. they will be visiting florida, ohio and virginia together. >> he has particular appeal in the african-american community and i would guess among suburban women. the kind of folks that are torn. i think bill clinton would be a significant asset for the president. in may clinton undercut the obama campaign's main argument that mitt romney's business experience does not qualify him to lead the country. >> a man who's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses th
president bill clinton acknowledging this enthusiasm story line that's an undercurrent. you can't deny it. >> i'm so proud to have worked for bill clinton. can i say that on the air? >> are you angling for awe new job? >> he's not running for anything. i remember working for him. he was the same way then as he is today. he's so optimistic, but so are americans. americans are by nature optimistic he people, and that's one of the reasons why this country is so special and has on so many inonovatorinnovators. we're by nature future oriented people. president clinton himself said elections are about the future. they're about whand of future you see. what he articulates is something i think is a bonafide feeling among the democratic race. we are enthusiastic about it. you can feel it. >> he chose an interesting way to articulate it. i am far more enthusiastic about president about obama thavenlt a few years. >> anne it this endorsement by mayor bloomberg surprised everyone yesterday, citing climate change that he decided to support the president on this. let me play what's getting traction. ma
for the public right now is please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. >> that left bill clinton flying solo in florida. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> governor romney canceled his schedule tonight but today he was still campaigning out of the storm's path in ohio. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. and we are in a special edition today, hurricane sandy growing stronger, reaching what could be historic strength as it heads directly for the northeast. we've got all of our reporters standing by throughout the danger zones with full reports but first, our meteorologist bill karins, live in lower manhattan, bracing for the storm surge tonight. bill, you're down there near battery city and obviously you're looking at tide coming in i guess around 8:30 tonight, is the really first test of just how bad this is going to be? >> yeah. this is

in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it will be interesting to see where his voice is by 8:00 tonight. in the frenetic final days both candidates are giving positive pitches and warnings as to what will happen if the other guy is voted in. and bolder last night the president argued for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bail out only 10% of the country approved of it. >> and then the president argued romney is a candidate who can't be trusted. >> governor romney has been using all this formidible talent as a salesman to dress up. the very same positives that failed
for the small states. not really. we have had three small state presidents in history. bill clinton, franklin pierce. the big states always win for 32 of the 36 years as a slave holding virginian. it's also massachusetts, state two or three, depending on how you count. the next four years, a massachusetts guy. the biggest northern state and virginians, the biggest southern state. not big state/small state. we never actually have a breakdown in american history between big states and small states. the lineup is more geographic. it's coast against center. in fact, a conservative should know this. we have it more for reasons having to do with slavery. if you have a national popular vote, the south would have lost every time. it doesn't let the slave population vote. the three fifths clause. pennsylvania in 1800 has more free people than virginia, way more voters than virginia, way fewer electoral votes. it connects to "today." if you want people to participate, the electoral college dampens it. ohio gets the same number of votes. if you have direct election, you create incentives for governments
sunday to be in orlando this morning for the big roll-out of joint appearances with former president bill clinton. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. >> obama left early this morning and they believe the weather in washington detearateed so fast it would be difficult to land air force one later in the day. >> the early voters are already making decisions. you know what our decision is. what i want to do is make sure that everybody who agrees with us votes. >> key part of the obama campaign strategy is early voting which could be effected in coastal battlegrounds. today, the virginia state board of elections urged localities to keep moving forward with in-person absentee voting unless the storm makes it unsafe. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. worry about the impact on families and the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on the economy. >> it could delay friday's release of new jobs report just four days before the election. >> labor department official later said it's our intention that friday will
in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a desperate candidate. joining me now is former ohio governor ted strickland, national co-chairman for the obam
to manipulate media coverage? >> to quote bill clinton, they think you're stupid. it's more a play for the media being stupid, saying look here's a chance to even it up, the press loves to even it up and pennsylvania is a way -- >> are they trying to get obama to put resources into pennsylvania? >> it is part of it. there is an element of a head fake to see can we shake something lose here, can we see movement in numbers, can we make them spend time there, maybe once you're playing those kinds of games you know that your path to 70 is limited. as you said you better get ohio because pennsylvania is garbage. >> when people tune in on tuesday night and they see you lawrence o'donnell reading these election results. >> no, they're going to see rachel maddow. i will be sitting somewhere nearby being very quiet. >> there's a funny thing where they're going to look at the bottom of the screen and see these votes coming in, it's going to start at zero and go p. but that's an artificiality. he has what looks to be a billing lead there and that is concrete. that's not polling. that's ballots. >> part of
tomorrow. concord, new hampshire, with bill clinton. hollywood, florida, with pit bull. and aurora, colorado, with dan's favorite, dave matthews. >> it's the other way around. >> i'm the dave fan. he's the pit bull fan. >> reporter: i confuse you guys all the time. i'm sorry. i apologize. >> jake, thanks so much. >>> as jake mentioned, it's all about the battleground states and the eight, key races. last night for mitt romney, it was all about ohio. abc's david muir is with the romney campaign in newington, new hampshire. good morning to you, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. we have kid rock on the romney campaign. we listened to him last night in ohio. in new hampshire, mitt romney holding a rally a short time from now. voters know this is where his second home is. he was the governor of neighboring massachusetts. but the real sign of this campaign is not taking the four electoral votes for granted. as jake alluded to all eyes of the campaign on the states they're truly eyeing. overnight, mitt romney in the must-win state of ohio, with his wife, ann, his five sons, his ru

bill clinton and george h.w. bush raised for their entire presidential campaigns 20 years ago. we're joined by bill cohen, a columnist for bloomberg view and the author of "money and power, how goldman sachs came to rule the world." what do you make of the amount of money that's being spent, but specifically the so-called social welfare organizations who are completely unaccountable and completely unidentifiable because nobody knows who they are, they spent millions of dollars and 83% of the spending has been used to attack democrats. >> well, once again it's the lack of accountability that we see across government. we see it across wall street. to be able to spend that kind of money targeting your message against democrats and not know who is behind it i don't think is doing our democracy any good. and i think, you know, once we get through this election cycle, i think that's one thing that we need to take a new look at and see if we can possibly change that. there was that incredibly good program on front line the other day examining this very long and it was mind boggling the m
